Living, and comprehensive of all life.“

„We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.“

— Philip James Bailey
Context: We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best. Life's but a means unto an end; that end Beginning, mean, and end to all things, — God. The dead have all the glory of the world. Scene V, A Country Town
